I heard a joke today, "Why are camels called the ships of the desert?" "...because they're full of Arab seamen"

and it got me thinking, you really could make ships of the desert. all you really need is a huge vehicle with a) gigantic tires, and b) sails.  it works just like a ship, and the tires are big enough to make running over bumps and cacti negligible.

I think depression must feel like getting kicked off of every reality show first.

ok so my idea
it's like a school, but part of the function is to impregnate people's minds with a collection of symbols that will do them well for a long, long time.

i can give you a couple of candidate lists

1a - courage, bravery, loyalty, nerve and (yuck) chivalry
1b - hard work, tolerance, loyalty, and fair play
1c - intelligence, creativity, learning, and wit
1d - ambition, cunning, leadership, resourcefulness, expertise

2a -
2b1 -
2b2 -
2b3 -
2c1 -
2c2 -

3 -

warning: 3 is really high info - you could get dizzy - take the symbols slowly.

impregnation could work through a) meditating on the symbols, b) sharing in groups with other people on the same symbol path, andor c) having people take a symbol, and then practice on it for a while to the mentor's satisfaction.. if they want.

this is all just an idea, and i don't really know if it's a good one. i'll let you be the judge of that.

To help ease the tension of cops saying what you are and aren't allowed to do to fulfill their ego, I propose that cops' uniforms be brighter colors.
